Eataly's Nutella bar was the smooth, chocolatey oasis New York needed at the tourist-trap and Italian food feeding frenzy that is Eataly. And while it disappeared for a while, the Nutella bar is back — this time for good — and with a freaking Nutella fountain.
The Nutella bar, opening May 27th at 5pm, will again take over the 23rd St-facing space that was once Eataly's wine store now that they've moved the vino shop to a bigger, two-level space a couple doors down. When reached by phone, Eataly PR Manager Cristina Villa said that along with the Nutella fountain, people can expect all sorts of new, awesome-sounding Nutella offerings like waffles with Nutella and even gelato that can be served with Nutella on top, obviously. They've also knocked down a wall so that you can access the bar from Greater Eataly, instead of just the separate storefront door, she said.
